centre of...


Explanation:
This is a typical German construction of three nouns (ort, kern and areal) which finds no English equivalent, really. "Ortskern" is really the centre of a small town (Bad Bellingen sounds just the place) and "areal" just describes the area of this centre. In English, I would simply translate it into "centre of Bad Bellingen" and be done with it.
